How to Cancel e-Transfer in Scotiabank

By Remitbee - May 19, 2022

Whatever the reason why you want to cancel an e-Transfer, the good news is that you may cancel the transaction so long as it shows up as “pending”. After successfully cancelling it, the money will be returned to your account. e-Transfers are designed to send money instantly, often within several minutes, so you must spot immediately any error you’ve made so that you can cancel the transfer before the money is sent.

Note, however, that if your recipient is registered for autodeposit, the money you sent them will automatically be transferred to their Scotiabank account and cancelling the transaction is impossible.

In this how-to article, you will learn how to cancel e-Transfers in Scotiabank.
